Always aiming to put the smaller / less well known bands front and centre, welcome to our series featuring acts on the New Forces stage at this year’s Metal Days festival in Slovenia, as well as a couple of bands who are being featured for a second time having trodden the boards of that stage in earlier years. We’ll be there with them and hopefully will catch as many of them live as possible so we can tell you how good they are! Tickets for the five-day (plus warmup!) event are still available for around £135. It takes place in Tolmin, Slovenia, from July 21st to 28th.

When did you first find out about Metal Days?
We’ve known of the festival for a long time and our guitar player Nova is a visitor for many years now (even when it was called MetalCamp)
How did you end up on the bill for this year’s festival?
We applied for a slot at Metal Days last year directly at the festival and then got an email this year that we are confirmed to play on the New Forces Stage – which is awesome!!
Is this the furthest you’ll ever have played from home and/or the biggest gig you’ve ever played? If so, what was the furthest/biggest before now?
Metal Days will be the biggest festival for us yet. We’ve played some smaller open-air festivals in the past and are very lucky to share the stage with some great bands already, but Metal Days is the biggest event so far. The furthest gig so far was a show in Barcelona / Spain – but Metal Days is close ;)
Which bands on the bill are you most looking forward to seeing?
Personally, I want to see Kataklysm, Gruesome, Obituary, Demonical, Mantar and of course Priest – and actually many more! We will definitely check as many New Forces bands out that we can – you should do that too – support the underground!
Other than bands, what are you most looking forward to about Metal Days?
Tolmin and the Triglav national park is such a beautiful landscape – it will be like metal holidays in the most beautiful landscape you can think of – what more do you need?
Before you hit the stage: Monster energy drink or Laško beer?
No question! Beeeer! Cheers!
We’ll see you there!
Thank you very much for the interview and make sure you’ll watch our show on Wednesday, 25th!
